Nestled in the foothills of Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains, Douglas Lake is a breathtaking sight. With the impressive Douglas Dam on one end, the lake that is also known as Douglas Reservoir extends its 30000-acre mass from the French Broad River, which feeds the lake, toward the majestic Smoky Mountains on its other end. Along the lake's 550 miles of shoreline, there are plenty of exciting things to do, including fishing, hiking, and rafting. And the lake is close to some of Tennessee’s most interesting attractions like national parks, urban centers, and amusement parks. With its natural beauty, fun activities, and central location, Douglas Lake is sure to draw anyone looking to rent a lakefront home.

Adventure is never lacking for those who rent property at Douglas Lake. Fishermen with lakefront homes are literally steps away from a huge variety of bass fishing—black bass, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, and spotted bass. Walking trails in the Trotter Bluff Small Wild Area lead hikers through impressive hardwood forests, beautiful wildflowers during the spring, limestone sinkholes, and magnificent views of the dam. In the foothills of the Smokies, adventurers can get an adrenaline rush riding several zip lines and enjoy more thrills by rafting the French Broad River. In the fall, bird watchers can spot the many waterfowl that migrate to the shores of Douglas. The Douglas Lake shoreline golf courses like Baneberry and Dandridge offer golfers a charming lakeside resort atmosphere with courses that challenge all levels. Visit for listings of available properties on one of these resorts.

Lake-view homes provide privacy and amenities with convenient access to the nearby developed communities of Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Dandridge, and even Dollywood. A short 30-minute drive will land lake residents in the shops, restaurants, and bars of Knoxville. Another 30-minute drive to the south takes residents to the natural wonders of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. There are many opportunities for amusement in the surrounding area as well. Dollywood, so-called because of Dolly Parton’s ownership of the park, offers lake residents exciting amusement park thrills like roller coasters and Ferris wheels, a water amusement park called Dollywood’s Splash Country, as well as local crafts and the folk and blue grass music that are traditional in the Smoky Mountain community.

With so much to see, so much to do, and so many places to go, residents at Douglas Lake lead exciting and fun lives. To join them, check out the homes for rent right along the shoreline.

Douglas Lake is very fertile and green in color. Water clarity is greatest near the dam, while the upper sections of the lake are usually stained. In general, the lake stains easily following heavy rains due to the muddy bottom. Thermal stratification (thermocline) usually develops in the summer months. Dissolved oxygen becomes depleted below the thermocline during late summer (July and August), making fishing tough until cooler fall weather arrives.

Size and Depth: 30,400 acres with a maximum depth of 140 feet. The lake extends 43.1 miles upstream from the Douglas Dam.

Shoreline: Only about 17 percent of the shoreline is developed; the remainder is controlled by the TVA. Rolling hills of farmland and residential areas surround the lake.

Cover: The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has placed many fish attractors in the lake, mainly in the backs of hollows where they are marked by signs or buoys. At full pool, downed trees along the bank offer cover for game fish. In winter or spring, before the lake rises, cover is scarce and fish are found on channel drop-offs and rock outcroppings. Timber was cut prior to flooding, leaving numerous stump-covered flats. Due to the large draw down, aquatic vegetation is lacking.

Bottom: Mostly silt and clay with some areas of rock outcroppings and bluffs.
